Major developments

South Australia has a record 304 major projects either underway or in the pipeline, with a total value of $94 billion.

We are currently enjoying tremendous growth that is attracting international, national and local investors across a wide range of sectors.

Much of this is driven by demand for our world-class mineral and energy resources, a significant contributor to South Australia's economy. Since 2005 the estimated value of minerals and energy projects in South Australia has increased by almost $25 billion to more than $30 billion.

Our expertise in defence, food, wine and manufacturing and the rise of renewable energy and environmental management technologies is also helping drive economic transition in this state.

The multi-billion contract to assemble the Navy's next-generation submarines together with the $8 billion Air Warfare Destroyers project are contributing to South Australia's reputation as the 'defence state'.

Innovative urban development at Bowden and the redevelopment of the former Mitsubishi site at Tonsley will provide business, living and employment opportunities in precincts shaped by world-leading sustainable thinking, design and technologies.

Huge projects in infrastructure, urban development, water management and cleantech are also changing the course of our economy and the future of all South Australians.
